OK quick checklist for REGTFs
 
So i think im ready but just want to double check on the humidity. Every post seems to be different but I think i have about 2000$ worth of crap to try and get these REGTFs going. They come on monday but i have the tank seeded with about 500 dwarf white isopods, a few springtails, plants that i have no clue what they are, 1 night time light, 1 heat light (tank is big and i live in the desert where it gets very cold at night), 2 computer fans on top to circulate air with all of the screen open, 4 lights that are 6500k set up a little so it doesnt produce too much heat, and a mistking system. The temp is about low 70-75 at night and 80 during the day. My question is what humidity should i be at? Whats considered "dry season" and whats considered the "wet season" as far as the relative humidity. And what else do u see that i messed up on lol.

good start...but as a suggestion for tree frogs...have things that they can use as a tree--like branches, things of that sort. They spend 98% of their time in the tops of plants/trees...and the plants you have there are too short ... You can take a look in the construction threads here on DB--leaning branches, branches/cork tubes...things like that...some posters have even siliconed branches across the tanks--if you DO silicone something in place...give the tank time to "age" before putting the frogs in...

I agree with the previous post. I would also get some larger plants like a snake plant since red-eyes like to sleep vertically and curled up. I used to breed them years ago and are pretty hardy. I would not worry about cycling them (wet season vs. dry) until they are acclimated. Hope this helps and good luck.

Humidity should be 70-80%.

Great plants for tree frogs are:

Pothos / Epipremnum aureum

There are quite a few varying colors in each plant species. The older plants will have stronger, heavier leaves that can hold their weight. I often buy larger plants and just use sections of them so I have the large leaves but not the whole potted plant.

Nice build so far :).

Thanks u guys, i have them in a quarantine tank right now and they prob will be in there for a couple months, so i think it gives the plants plenty of time. I really dig the Chinese evergreens and will keep a lookout for some! I will keep a eye out for larger plants too and even added some already. What is a good wall clinger that has larger leaves?

And their tank is slowly creeping along. I cut a fake rock in half to cover the drain access and it now blends better i think

A pothos plant would work nicely.
